Posted on behalf of Class President Patrick Shannon.
Fellow Association Members:
As we close out 2019, the Board wants to express our appreciation to all Association members for your unwavering support on and off the water this past year. We had incredible participation at the Fleet level all across the country and at our two annual, national events (Nationals in Newport Beach and East-West in Hilton Head). Bravo Zulu all!
For 2020, we are implementing improvements to the Association’s organizational structure to include an easier, on-line voting process for Directors and transitioning from an unincorporated association to a mutual benefit non-profit corporation. As part of this transition process, the nominations for and election of new Directors will be held in early 2020 versus in December 2019. We continue our focus on achieving a reliable and cost-effective source of supply for boat parts to allow you to continue to sail without any significant down time when you need repairs. Our outside counsel (Blank Rome) continues to protect and defend the Association’s interests in the litigation initiated by W.D. Schock against the Association and the companies with which they contracted to build boats.
We look forward another great year of sailing, racing, learning, and friendship. Our Class exemplifies the very best of Corinthian sailing and your Board and Officers are committed to making sure that the Class continues to grow and thrive for many decades ahead.
